“Let us show our wives, our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our girlfriends, our lovers, our friends, our colleagues, OUR COUNTRY, that we stand together in grief, sadness, shame and anger at the current state of our nation” says Kholikile Dlakiya from the Mankind Project, an international non-profit community of men from all walks of life across society.
“We are fathers and sons, brothers and husbands, we are role models for our families and our communities and occupy positions of power. We need to take accountability for the roles we play and the fact that this current crisis of violence against women is due to our action and inaction,” says Dlakiya.
Mankind Project challenges ALL men across South Africa, regardless of age, race or income to take a stand together at this critical moment. “We must all do whatever we can to keep our streets, our families and our country safe from the legacy of violence and abuse that still plagues our society.
Let’s show them what real men look like.”
